This Holiday Inn Express was clean and comfortable. Well-maintained facility. It generously allowed us to stay past the check-out time. The breakfast was decent. However, I thought the worker there was in too big of a hurry to put away the food for last minute guests. A good five minutes before breakfast time is over and she was putting stuff away. There was plenty of food left, thus makes me wonder whether they reuse the unpackaged food for the next day. Other than that, I enjoy my stay here.

I stayed here recently during a Santa Clara University orientation session. What a great hotel. Not to far from the school (driving not walking). Very clean room and wonderful staff. Easy check in and check out plus the wonderful cookies at check in is a bonus. The breakfast was a good way to start the day. I totally recommend staying here if you need a hotel to stay at when in the area.

Visiting Santa Clara Univ, this hotel is just about a mile down the same road, very convenient. It appeared to have been remodeled recently and was the nicest HI Express we had ever stayed in. Room & decor was very modern and offered several ports to charge electronics. Across the street from Denny's, not much else walkable. But a clean, reasonably priced option.

Room Tip: there is a section of rooms on the 2nd floor that require walking up a few extra steps... if you don...

for a business trip - this hotel is just perfect. the rooms are spacious and clean, there is free wi-fi (you have to sign-in once every 24hrs though). it doesn't feel upmarket like courtyard for example, but there are several things going for this hotel. the breakfast is good, rooms are spacious and well equipped with microwave, coffee machine and a fridge. they provide you a free shuttle (pickup and drop) to your office. they have a small but complete gym, guest laundry facility and ample parking. the reception even collects your shipment without a fuss. being at the cross-road of san tomas and el camino real, it can get a bit noisy at night - with police sirens, ambulances etc.

there are only two things i can suggest for further improvement. (1) the breakfast - though good is rather monotonous (2) the air conditioner is rather noisy - cant they get a quieter one?

Room Tip: ask for a room that doesn't face either of the main roads (san tomas, el camino real).
